    I hate how men are rewarded for being aggressive, assertive assholes, while even a MILDLY assertive woman is smacked down.

    In a better world, assholes would be smacked around until they adjusted their attitudes and people with real drive and ambition are rewarded regardless of their sex, and no one demands they spend more time with their kids…[Read more]

    I never once noticed how my female professors were attired. Come on, people, is it that hard?

    Apparently for some dips it is.

    Reminds me of all those “agnostics” out there who fear the term atheist, despite that being definitionally what they are.

    I suspect that’s the DDoS.

    I really hope you come back as a guest often – once a week would be ideal ^_^

    “It’s more common to see a blue hedgehog than a person of color as a protagonist”: Inside the whitewashed world of video games – “Arthur Chu talks to #INeedDiverseGames’ creator about why we need to see ourselves reflected in the games we play”

    Strictly speaking there’s only one of those! But yeah, cartoon characters are more popular.

    • Paul,

      True, but they could always do human characters, ( especially if they were meant to be cartoonish ) even in the days of Atari. With the original Nintendo, there were a huge number of games with human characters. Sure they still weren’t very detailed, but you could still easily put them in games as the main character. I would expect…[Read more]

    Harassment and threats are crimes.

    He’s advocating caution, which is fair enough, not disagreeing with the article, at least that’s what i read into the comment.

  • Paul posted a new activity comment 3 years, 8 months ago

    That would be one question I have about this, from a purely definitional standpoint…

    Even then, though – say someone sent Rebecca a threatening message, and she dug up the person’s real name, is that wrong? I don’t think so.

  • Paul posted a new activity comment 3 years, 8 months ago

    If someone sends me a threatening email and I publish it, email and IP address uncovered, how is that wrong?

    I can’t imagine any way that this is wrong.

  • Paul posted a new activity comment 3 years, 8 months ago

    Perfectly acceptable. Simple enough.

    I winced when I read about this before work today. I could already see the MRAs crowing about it and using it as fodder for years to come.

    I’m kind of reminded of another case I read earlier today, about a man who was arrested and lost his job because a sheriff was “absolutely certain” he was a mysterious man appearing in a tape showing the…[Read more]

    Regarding the Cuba thing – I’d imagine that has more to do with a surfeit of excellent doctors in Cuba (due to state programs to encourage it) plus unilateral control of their lives (Cuba is still a grotesquely dictatorial country) followed by a decided lack of funds compared to most Western nations than any real humanitarian impulse on behalf of…[Read more]

    Man, feminists ruin everything!
    Nigeria just wants to sell women as property. It’s an age-old tradition that’s withstood the test of time. What’s next, secularism? PFAH

    I’m sorry, Dawkins, was that your facile polemic being publicly and brilliantly eviscerated?

  • Paul posted a new activity comment 3 years, 11 months ago

    It’s funny, because someone mentioned that to me on Twitter, and I was like “Never see the classic film North by Northwest? People got Cary Grant drunk in an attempt to get him to die and make it look like an accident.”

    Wow, this is a new low for Dawkins.

    And now I finally understand what happened with Michael Shermer, too.

    Unfortunately for the family, indeed – Dunning should have been thinking of that when he committed wire fraud, not after he was caught. A family must be a convenient thing if you only think of it when you’re trying to think of reasons for a reduced sentence.
    It’s a shame, really. I used to go to Skeptoid because it provided concise, easily…[Read more]

    “The late 90?s costumes, set design, and special effects may be a bit off-putting”

    PFFFT

    At the least, it stands up pretty well to the present day, thankfully. Great show.
